TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS

Temporary exhibitions are an extension and an enrichment of permanent displays, focusing on topics which belong to our everyday life.

FANTASY

FANTASY

July 4, 2017 – August 31, 2017

On show the paintings by Nini (aka Nie Jingjing), a young Chinese artist representative of Chinese Abstract Expressionism. The paintings are dedicated to themes and stories filtered by emotion and by artistic practice, in which the joyful and emotionally positive gesture (fancy) puts on canvas historical concepts, places and fictions. In all her works, ironic and conceptual elements mix with the Italian geographic locations visited by the artist.

Minimaforms: Pet 2.0 (Prototype)

Minimaforms: Pet 2.0 (Prototype)

March 30, 2017 – May 31, 2018

Pet 2.0 is robotic creature.
Its behaviours evolve through the interaction with viewers and they are communicated through movement, sound and light.

Pet 2.0 is like a house pet: it stimulates curiosity, play and the exchange of emotions between man and robot. It is part of an on-going research exploring our emotional relationships with intelligent machines.

The installation is part of the educational project Make your Tech, funded by CISCO Foundation.
The goal is to explore the use of electronic media and open source technologies such as creative and expressive tools, working at the intersection of art, science, technology and design.
